Inspiration post for inspired20in20

This is my first round over there, and this round they are asking us to give them a selection of what inspires US the most. So, I'm going to attempt to narrow that down. haha There wll be some textures here, some icons that I really like (with their creds of course), maybe a font or two, and possibly a song or two. This should be a fun post!

AND as a side challenge, jsfunction, ghanimasun and sayuri_x I would love to see what inspires you! And if any of our watchers want to play, feel free to add your inspirations in the comments to this post!

On to the inspirations!



Icons

JS made me want to get outside my box and really pushed me down the road toward where I am now in terms on iconning. A lot of his Farscape icons made me want to push myself and get better in terms of coloring, blocking, and even blending when it came to tiny canvases. His silhouette icon, I consider one of the most beautiful ones I've ever seen and I am always trying to do one just as good. (and failing each time!)

Erin has MAD SKILLS when it comes to negative space. Seriously.

ghanimasun

I'm really inspired by ghanimasun's use of bright fake backgrounds. I've tried to do my own a few times. Trying new things gets me out of my box. :)

Queen Bartonia

I love these! That silhouette icon is amazing. I'm jealous of anyone who can do these! The second icon is amazing. I love the dark shadowy icons anyway and the text placement on it is perfect.

Fonts


Textures
I tend to make wallpaper sized graphics, so most of my textures are large. The main palace I get textures is APOD. The Astronomy Picture of the Day Love the Nebula photos. :)

music
Frank Sinatra. Anything by him. His music is my happy place. :)

(Will add this to add in a few more things tomorrow, hopefully. For now, I sleep)
